The phrase that makes me laugh every time I hear it. This may just be me, but when someone says "I hate to say it" it almost sounds like they love to say it.
My word of inspiration this year is "less". At the beginning of 2023, I wasn't feeling very creative. I gifted myself more time to just explore, in the hopes that by putting less pressure on myself I would rediscover my creative flow. In my sketchbook, I started writing down silly phrases I heard, or even notes/journal entries I wrote myself. It felt a little scary to share because it's so unlike my typical work, but by following this path and just having fun, I found my way back to the place I so love to be - creating.
